As President of the New England Revolution, Brian Bilello reports directly to the Kraft family and oversees all aspects of the club’s business and soccer operations. He is responsible for establishing the club’s strategic vision and fostering its implementation. Working closely with the Kraft family to represent the Revolution in league matters, Bilello has and continues to serve on several Major League Soccer and Soccer United Marketing committees.

Additionally, Bilello also played a leading role in the campaign to bring FIFA World Cup 2026™ to Boston, which resulted in Boston and Gillette Stadium being selected as official hosts for the 2026 tournament. Bilello is Chair of the Board for Boston Soccer 2026.

During his 21-year tenure with the Kraft organization, the Revolution have been to MLS Cup four times (2005, 2006, 2007, and 2014) and have won the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (2007), the North American SuperLiga (2008), and the Supporters’ Shield (2021) with an MLS-record 73-point season.

Following the 2021 season, the club underwent its first major rebrand, introducing new logos and brand marks for the first time in New England’s history. The reception was overwhelmingly positive across the region and the world as the club enhanced its image in a region with several proud and iconic sports franchises. 

Ahead of the 2020 season, Bilello oversaw the development and construction of the Revolution Training Center in Foxborough, the home of the Revolution first team, Revolution II, and Revolution Academy. The $35-million facility is among the league’s best and provides the original MLS club with a state-of-the-art headquarters complete with three professional-grade fields, multiple locker rooms, sports performance and athletic training facilities, and more.

Prior to joining the club, Bilello was a Revolution season ticket holder, giving him an inside track on the team’s fan experience. He enjoys working directly with supporters to ensure the club continues to prioritize their experience and every touch point they have with the club.

Bilello has over a decade of senior leadership and strategic management in professional sports. He joined Kraft Sports & Entertainment in 2003 and served the Revolution, the New England Patriots, Boston Uprising, and Gillette Stadium in various operational and strategic roles. He worked to improve the fan experience across all areas of Gillette Stadium. He has also overseen the stadium’s concessions and retail operations, and provided strategic advice to the Kraft family on a number of issues related to their sports ventures, in particular, soccer, MLS, and the Revolution.

Bilello’s experience in professional sports started prior to landing in Foxborough while working as a management consultant for Bain & Company. During his tenure with the company, he worked with clients across a variety of functions, including sports, retail, consumer products, and entertainment industries in Bain & Company’s Boston and San Francisco offices.

An avid soccer player himself, Bilello played varsity soccer at MIT while studying engineering and economics and continues to play in his free time. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Vanessa, and two daughters. He is a member of the Board of Directors for Boston Scores, serves on Cradles 2 Crayons’ Corporate Advisory Council, and was named to Boston Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” in September 2012.
